We have to start asking ourselves, ‘Why is it that war is a priority but the basic needs of people in this country are not?’”

Thanks Monte -

I watched the Kucinich clip earlier this morning on a different forum but hadn't seen the Bacevich material.

It's been kicked around here a bit in the past, but I remember back a few months when I would laugh at Representatives like Kucinich and Ron Paul.

So who's the idiot now? I stand guilty as charged.

Enjoy this one.....
